In Michigan, in order to legally operate a motorcycle, a special endorsement must be obtained from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Failure to obtain this endorsement subjects the operator to various penalties which may affect their driving privileges.
You not only got the endorsement, you successfully passed the classes to ensure that when on the road you are operating your motorcycle in compliance with the law. When operating your motorcycle you make sure you are not impaired in any way and always pay attention to other drivers. You use the Department of Transportation (DOT) approved motorcycle helmet; make sure you have body, face, and eye protective gear when on a ride; and keep your equipment in proper working order. No matter what you do, though, at any time you may be the victim of a negligent driver who just did not see you.
Following a motorcycle accident, it is easy to get overwhelmed by all that needs to be done to get you back on your feet. Even though the crash was not caused by you, you may be the one who solely has to deal with the inconvenience of not having the use of your motorcycle and you certainly are the only one who has to deal with your own recuperation. What you do not have to handle alone is the pursuit of just compensation for your damages and injuries.
